Purdue IEEE MTT-S spent the year focusing on competing for a second time in a row at the area's largest conference, IMS (International Microwave Symposium), in their student design competitions. Moreover, the officers as well as some of the more-involved members spent the fall semester developing a workshop for an FM transmitter. This included tasks such as circuit design, PCB layout, and documentation. Every Thursday, members learned about various topics such as classes of power amplifiers, modulation schemes, and RF front end components. Knowledge gained on these topics will help out as the club prepares to compete in the IMS student design competitions next summer.
